In 1993, Tom Gnuse and his wife, Jeanne, started HTG Investment Advisors at their kitchen table in New Canaan, Connecticut. The goal was to provide the individual investor with a systematic approach to asset allocation and portfolio construction previously available only to institutions and the ultra-wealthy. Equally important were a high level of service and a fee-only, fiduciary structure. These principles are still paramount at HTG today.

Responding to client needs, financial planning developed into an important component of our service. Clients were looking for assurance that they would be able to sustain their lifestyle and reach aspirational goals.

Early in the new millennium, HTG partnered with a successful local financial planner, Robin Sherwood, to provide comprehensive financial planning. It became clear that clients benefited from this collaboration and in 2005, Robin brought her practice to HTG. As the business grew, so did our staff and resources.

That’s a little of our story, but we’d really rather hear yours. We invite you to give us a call.
